NORMAN D. HANSEN.
One of the worthy citizens and honored business men of Napa county is Norman D. Hansen, manager of the Washington Market, in Napa. Though quiet and unassuming, he is a man of unassailable integrity and business ability and is deservedly numbered among the representative men of this locality.

Mr. Hansen was born on his father's farm in Napa county on the 19th of November, 1903, a son of Hans C and Emma (Nelson) Hansen. His father was born in Eastbjorg, Jolland, Denmark, June 23, 1868, and was reared and educated in his native land, where he lived until he was twenty three years of age. On immigrating to the United States he came at once to Napa county, California, and located on the. Brownlee ranch, in the Soscol district, where he put into practice the splendid knowledge of farming he had acquired in his native land. At first he worked for wages, but he was economical and thrifty, so that later he was able to operate rented land on Cameros creek and eventually acquired large land holdings of his own, devoting much of his attention to the raising of cattle, sheep and hogs. Later he engaged in the meat business in Napa, establishing the Washington Market, which is now managed by his son, Norman D. He was a man of marked initiative and business ability, sound in his judgment and of unswerving integrity in all his transactions. His wife was born and reared in Mendocino county, this state.

Norman D. Hansen was educated in the public and high schools and then entered his father's shop, where he thoroughly learned the meat business. He is now managing the enterprise, having under him four employes, and he is showing himself a man of sound judgment and wise discrimination. They own their own abbatoir and prepare their own meats, manufacturing their own sausage and other prepared meats, thus insuring to the trade clean and fresh meat, of the best quality.

Norman Hansen was married to Miss Ileece Stoddard. Politically he gives his support to the republican party, while fraternally he is a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Native Sons of the Golden West. He is friendly and considerate in his social relations, and throughout this community he is held in the highest regard by a host of warm personal friends, who esteem him for his genuine worth.
